Wasn’t planning on buying any more guitars for a while, but this one, that I had been stalking for over a year suddenly went down below $2k and I couldn’t pass it up.

It’s a vintage radius but almost feels compound. I typically hate vintage 7.25 / 7.5 but there is no binding while bending, neck is set up great and the action is pretty low. It’s very comfortable. Pretty hot pickups whatever they are. They have the bridge set up decked and it works for this guitar. Not a lot of buzzing even playing rough, and gobs of sustain.

I have a think for matching head stocks and sparklers. It’s more relic’s than I prefer but it works on this guitar pretty well, with the nice worn in AAA rosewood board.

That’s hot. I go back and forth on the relics but that one looks great. I’m also a fan of metallic finishes so it pretty much was up my alley from jump street, the relicing sent it over the top.

Damn!,... I bet that is one fun Stratocaster to play.

Super sweet looking, to boot.

sounds a good deal, being a custom shop.
